Ruth Asawa

One of the most under-recognized and influential sculptors of the 20th century, Ruth Asawa, passed away on August 5th, 2013. She is best known for her intricately constructed wire abstractions.


“I was interested in it because of the economy of a line, making something in space, enclosing it without blocking it out…It’s still transparent. I realized that if I was going to make these forms, which interlock and interweave, it can only be done with a line because a line can go anywhere.”

Erwin Wurm’s One-Minute Sculptures

Austrian artist Erwin Wurm’s (b. 1954) One Minute Sculptures are equal parts sculpture, performance, and image. Here is an interview with Wurm about the series.

“If you approach things with a sense of humor,” the artist says, “people immediately assume you’re not to be taken seriously. But I think truths about society and human existence can be approached in different ways. You don’t always have to be deadly serious. Sarcasm and humor can help you see things in a lighter vein.”









Sculpture I students: for our next class meeting, bring as many props as possible for an in-class “One-Minute Sculpture” workshop, as well as, a camera (preferred) or camera phone for documentation.

Spontaneity will be rewarded: “First thought, best thought”
